"Narrative CBT for Psychosis is a clearly written text describing the potential for integrating solution-focused and narrative-based approaches with CBT for psychosis. It provides practical examples from the authors' experiences with this novel approach." - David Kingdon, Professor of Mental Health Care Delivery, University of Southampton. "Rhodes and Jakes have achieved an ambitious goal. They have assimilated several therapeutic traditions into a coherent set of techniques and principles that can be deployed to reduce the suffering of people with complex psychoses. This book will provide new and important ideas for practicing clinicians and clinical theorists alike". - Hamish McLeod, School of Psychology, University of Wollongong, Australia. "This is a significant contribution towards developing integrative therapeutic approaches to psychosis that combine a search for meaning and understanding with a practical interest in finding what works for the individual. The authors offer an innovative and inspirational synthesis which will be valued by all who seek to make sense and make progress in supporting people who experience psychosis to recovery."- Dr Glenn Roberts, Consultant in Psychiatric Rehabilitation and Recovery, Exeter & Lead on Recovery for the Royal College of Psychiatrists
